en Limba Engleză Hardback – 07 Nov 2014

Understanding of cattle genetics and genomics has increased dramatically. This book covers genetic components behind important factors in cattle production such as breeds, disease resistance, growth, development, behavior, body composition and meat quality. With significant updates throughout, this new edition includes significantly updated material, new contributing authors, and new chapters on genetics of fat production and deposition, nutrition, feed intake and feed efficiency, growth and body composition and genomic selection in beef and dairy cattle.* This book covers genetic components behind important factors in cattle production such as breeds, diseaseresistance, growth, development, behavior, body composition and meat quality.* Features significant updates throughout, this new edition includes significantly updated material, new contributing authors, and new chapters on genetics of fat production and deposition, nutrition, feed intake and feed efficiency, growth and body composition and genomic selection in beef and dairy cattle.* Covers important topics such as domestication, breed variety, disease resistance, developmental genetics, behavior, improvement of dairy and beef cattle, molecular genetics of milk production, genetics of fat production and deposition, genetics of growth, body composition, feed efficiency and meat quality, and genetics of adaptation not covered in the competing text.
